They are very sturdy and roomy and built extra tough swivel seats with backs. By law, all boats are required to have a safety kit with floating rope, waterproof flashlight and a whistle. The boats are also equipped with anchor, paddles and bailing can.
Fishing at Walleye Cove Outpost Camps
Walleye are of course the stars of the show. Lots of good sized walleyes for the fish fry are sure to put a smile on your face. There are some real trophy sized fish here too, so do not be surprised and keep your camera ready. Jigging is the most popular way to take your walleye. Trolling can also be productive.
Pike are plentiful and especially so in Upper Twin Lake. This system has produced record fish for Ontario. They feed on the whitefish and grow big and fat. Bring the big tackle and your camera. A perfect addition to your evening meal.
From Walleye Cove, there are also stocked brook trout lakes hidden back in the bush only accessible by logging roads. The Brook Trout are commonly in the 1 to 2-pound range but these lakes do produce 4 and 5-pounders from time to time. We keep their location a secret and only show our guests how to find them when they get here.
Depending on the mayfly hatch (late June), whitefish are a challenge. With their delicate mouth and habit of “rolling” you can have hours of fun. Dry flies that sink just a little are our favorite way to catch these beauties. From our clean waters, these fish are so tasty, especially when grilled.
